We use a shared Outlook directory as our helpdesk. Emails come in, we allocate an email to a specific team member using categories, and then that person responds. Once an email issue is resolved it is moved to another shared directory called Done.

My ultimate goal: Create a chart that shows

  • How many emails were received,

  • How many emails were sent, and

  • How many emails a team member sent.

I know how to create the chart using HTML/JavaScript, but I need this Outlook information in a CSV/JSON format to do this. I do not mind having to manually export data from Outlook into this format.

I do NOT need to know:

  • subject of email
  • recipients of email,
  • contents of email

What is the best solution here?
